Rice may contain measurable levels of arsenic -- a carcinogen -- but according to the Food and Drug Administration, consumers need not worry about their immediate health after eating rice and related products.

The FDA's new guidance, released Sept. 6 for consumers, however notes that the long-term health risks remain unclear.

You may want to read this:

How Does Arsenic Get into Rice?

As grains of rice take in arsenic, they accumulate a disproportionate amount in their outer hulls, which are stripped off if the grains are refined into white rice. This is why brown rice, which has some nutritional benefits when compared with white rice, has been found to contain more arsenic.

Thanks for this Octo,,,so this is natural takeup of arsenic???,,,

I figured it was more of a pesticide thingy,,,still should not grow

in the arsenic laced soil,,,but if natural,,,maybe not so bad,,,

wonder if there is a way to get the arsenic out of us???,,,

Cilantro works good for lead,,,and other heavy metals,,,

Arsenic is neither a metal nor a non-metal but instead joins a select but rather ill defined group of elements called the metalloids.

Metalloids???,,,this can't be good...

The second link I posted explains it pretty well. I guess we're forced to eat old sins. Never a good idea to eat where you crap. sad2.gif

Yes I'm sure we can handle naturally occurring arsenic but as it accumulates I wouldn't want too much of it.

Hi Octo,

Yeah the story I always got was arsenic would build up,,,

metals,,,lead, mercury, aluminum, etc.,,,alot of the detoxic

routines use Cilantro,,,I like it,,,and have always used it in

Salsa down here in New Mexico,,,fresh,,,they sell it in

Walmart even,,,good stuff,,,and always made me feel better,,,

even before I knew what it can do,,,anyway,,,search it out,,,

Oh yes, there are a lot of good things going on in the spice rack for sure. thumbsup.gif

Chelation therapy uses medicine or other substances to help the body clear out toxic metals, such as mercury, in addition to arsenic. Some dietary components also help the body remove certain toxins. Examples are fiber, the amino acid cysteine and sulphur. Other dietary supplements that help the body purge toxins are coenzyme Q10, the amino acid L-lysine, garlic and alfalfa. When using supplements to clear toxins and metals from the body, you should also supplement with essential minerals like iron, which are removed from the body in the chelation process.

Eat Cilantro!!!,,,

I use fresh,,,you can easily grow this stuff too,,,

if you have a decent climate,,,anyway,,,

A three-year double-blind metal detoxification study with over 350 people participating was undertaken at a Russian metal foundry, where more than 20 natural compounds were used in trials to remove heavy metals from people who had been exposed at very high levels to four main metals -- antimony, lead, cadmium and arsenic.

What were the results of testing chlorella as a heavy metal detoxification agent? The Russian trial using Broken Cell Wall chlorella combined with cilantro eliminated ALL heavy metals, including mercury! With no reported side-effects! In fact, the heavy metal binding power of chlorella was first discovered in the mining industry. Mixed with water, they pumped chlorella into mine shafts to collect the residual metals after bulk mining was completed.

http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articl...tools.aspx

this is Chlorella and Cilantro,,,but I believe just Cilantro will work,,,

know it will for mercury and lead,,,I read the science reports on that,,,

don't remember what it said about arsenic,,,but know there were other

metals removed,,,and this is so easy and safe to do,,,mercury will pour

out of you...

Yes we grow cilantro and use both fresh and dried in our cooking frequently.

We've had some threads on this topic in fact.

Cilantro. Cilantro is just one super-herb that can effectively remove heavy metals (aluminum, mercury, and lead in particular) – in only two weeks. Also, because these metals can damper the immune system, cilantro is also recognized as an immune-booster.

Whew! I'm safe because I like white Basmati or jasmine rice.
